Manually installing "ESXi550-201404001" on standalone ESXi server

Jump to solution

I have a few standalone ESXi hosts v5.5 u1 and need to install ESXi550-201404001 (Heartbleed patch).

I have putty SSH access and/or console access and I have the file "ESXi550-201404001.zip".

Can someone either point me to where I can get the command lines to execute or give me the command line?

Thanks

That had the commands I needed.

Below is what I ran, after putting the patch in datastore1...

esxcli software vib install -d "/vmfs/volumes/<hash_path_of_datastore1>/ESXi550-201404001.zip"
